NISE Net online workshop


The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.


Celebrating the Moon, Our Nearest Neighbor in Space

Tuesday, October 9, 2018; 2 - 3pm  Eastern / 11am - 12pm Pacific

There are a lot of exciting Moon events coming up: International Observe the Moon Night on October 20, 2018, a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, and the July 20, 2019 celebration of the 50th of anniversary of the Apollo 11 first humans landing on the Moon. This one-hour online workshop highlighted these events and how to celebrate them in your museum. We also shared NASA's latest efforts to study the Moon and the cameras mounted on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, and shared some practical tips for observing the Moon with your visitors.
